Why should companies install energy-efficient HVAC systems? The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) gives the most compelling reasons why we should choose these solutions: “Energy efficiency is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to combat climate change, reduce energy costs for consumers, and improve the competitiveness of U.S. businesses. Energy efficiency is also a vital component in achieving net-zero emissions of carbon dioxide through decarbonization.”

At Tri-Tech Energy in NJ, our clients appreciate the long-term savings they receive when we design, select, and install modern high-efficiency heating and cooling systems with advanced energy control systems. In this article, we’ll discuss the value of energy-efficient HVAC systems even further, and advise you on how to get started with your new system today. 

Available Energy-Efficient HVAC Systems for Commercial Buildings

The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) is a nonprofit public benefits corporation aiming to promote the manufacture and purchase of energy-efficient products and services. The CEE created a directory for easy access to energy-efficient residential and small commercial central air-conditioners and heat pump equipment, gas water heaters, furnaces and boilers. All products are certified by the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). 

Clients can quickly find energy-efficient HVAC systems for commercial buildings by asking Tri-Tech, rather than researching products in this directory. We offer a wide selection of products, whether you are upgrading a current system or working on a new construction project. Tri-Tech only works with top energy-efficient brands and manufacturers trusted by our technicians. 

How Much Does an Energy Efficient HVAC System Cost?

Cost is a primary consideration when making decisions about upgrading or replacing HVAC systems for your business. Some companies delay upgrading systems because they misunderstand their value. Any major costs upfront for an energy-efficient HVAC system will be offset by the various benefits a company receives from it. 

The cost of an energy-efficient HVAC system depends on various factors. Are you installing a new system or retrofitting a pre-existing one? Whatever your requirements, the system design, installation, and maintenance program should be well thought out to ensure the best return on investment. Tri-Tech can create an optimal system that maximizes comfort while minimizing costs and energy consumption, whether employing internet-accessible heating system controls or packaged rooftop units with free cooling economizers.  

What are the Benefits of an Energy-Efficient HVAC Unit?

Cost-savings. HVAC systems can significantly affect operational expenses. The upfront costs of an efficient system might be high, but ongoing energy costs will be substantially reduced, balancing out the initial expense.

Sustainability. An energy-efficient system will reduce the building’s carbon footprint, decrease air pollution, and minimize greenhouse gas emissions. These systems are an added benefit when sustainability has become a standard corporate value across industries. 

Regulatory compliance. Governments and environmental agencies are becoming strict about carbon emissions. 

Improved indoor air quality (IAQ). Employees and customers are generally healthier when they are surrounded by improved indoor air quality offered by efficient systems. 

Smart technology. Modern systems allow the control, monitoring, and optimization of a building’s overall HVAC usage.

Can High-Efficiency HVAC Be Energy Efficient? 

High-efficiency HVAC systems are synonymous with being energy-efficient. ENERGY STAR-certified light commercial HVAC equipment is approximately six percent more efficient than standard equipment. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings initiative tested Very High-Efficiency HVAC (VHE HVAC) systems, claiming to reduce heating and cooling energy use by 50% or more. The system is a performance-based technical specification optimizing the entire HVAC system to ensure all components work together for maximum performance. Results show 89% HVAC energy savings in an airport terminal office and 77% savings in a restaurant.
